Bauer Vapor X:50 Skate
Released April, 2009
The Pros:Fairly light skates, won't hold you back with the weight of them. Offer good protection against the puck or sticks hitting you. Excellent ankle support, keeps you stable.
The Cons:Stitching is a little weak, starts to loosen here and there after a year. Difficult to get in and out of.
The X:50 hockey skate is an upper level offering in Bauer's Vapor line. The upper of this skate has the thermoformed X-Rib pattern that is characteristic of the Vapor line. As opposed to the fiber composite outsole of the lower level X:40 or the full carbon composite of the higher level X:60, the outer of the X:50 is a full texallium composite.

As opposed to the basket-woven nylon upper of the X:40 or the Ultra-Light upper of the X:60, the X:40 has a mesh upper. Like both the X:40 and X:60, this hockey skate has integrated heel support in the footbed, as well as dual-density foam ankle padding (though the X:40's foam ankle pads are not dual density). The form-fit tongue of the X:50 (which is has in common with the X:60) has a high-density metatarsal guard that will protect the front of your feet from stray pucks and sticks. The footbed of the X:50 is superfit designed (like both the X:40 and X:60 models), with moisture management. There are size options available for the Bauer Vapor X:50 hockey skate.
